New Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has had enough of President Obama, and Senator Cruz has only been in office for a few days. In an interview with conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham, Senator Cruz boldly said about Obama, and I quote, "he has drunk the Kool aid" and he is "high on his own power" when it comes to gun control.
We agree with Senator Cruz and are proud to know that we have a patriot like him in the Senate. Seeing President Obama use children the way he did just yesterday when he announced his gun control initiatives was sickening and it is pure media manipulation. The President dragged children onto the fight on gun control by having a group of kids stand around him while he signed executive orders all for a willing media to photograph and put on the news. As t the same time the President was busy exploiting children for his own purposes, the liberal elitist panel at Morning Joe was having a conniption about he new NRA ad exposing liberal elitists.
Since this is the kind of hypocrisy and outright media manipulation we can certainly expect more of from President Obama and what we call the State Run Media, we need patriots like Ted Cruz who is not afraid to call it like it is.
Read below some of what Senator Cruz said on the Laura Ingraham show from The Weekly Standard:
Republican senator Ted Cruz of Texas said Thursday that Barack Obama is "high on his own power" with regard to the president's announced efforts on gun control. Speaking on Laura Ingraham's radio talk show, Cruz, who was just elected to the Senate last November, said "this is a president who has drunk the Kool-Aid."
"He is feeling right now high on his own power, and he is pushing on every front, on guns," Cruz said. "And I think it's really sad to see the president of the United States exploiting the murder of children and using it to push his own extreme, anti-gun agenda. I think what the president is proposing and the gun control proposals that are coming from Democrats in the Senate are, number one, unconstitutional, and number two, they don't work. They're bad policy."
Cruz told Ingraham that he does not believe Obama will be successful in passing gun control legislation and that the political ramifications of pursuing such laws could be bad for Democrats.
"I think he's going to pay a serious political price, and I think the price that's going to be paid on this is going to manifest in Senate races in 2014, in some red states," Cruz said. "And there have got to be some Democrats who are up for reelection in 2014 who are very, very nervous right now that President Obama is picking this fight."
